HOMEBOUND DELIVERY SERVICE GUIDELINES:

  • Any Lafourche Parish Public Library cardholder who is either temporarily or permanently homebound can register with the Lafourche Parish Public Library’s Homebound Delivery Service.

  • All participants must have a library card in good standing.

  • Participants must complete the Application for Homebound Services form and mail, fax, email, or return it to their local Lafourche Parish Public Library branch.  Participants can also call and have a library staff member complete their application over the phone.

  • Participants can either arrange for a family member or friend to pick up their requested library materials at their local library branch or can arrange for home delivery of materials by the library, if needed.

  • Items will be loaned for twenty-one days. Renewals will be allowed once for items that are not on hold for someone else. Participants can call their local branch to request that their items be renewed.

  • Staff will generally select materials for each patron by using the information supplied on the Homebound Service Application.  Participants can also request specific items or types of items.

  • Items not available at the time of request will be placed on hold. Patrons will be notified when the item becomes available.

  • Overdue fines are not charged for materials loaned under this service. However, because program participants are responsible for items checked out on their card, they will be charged the replacement cost for any and all materials that are lost and/or damaged while in their care. Library materials are considered lost when they are 90 days overdue.

  • This service is only available to the homebound participant. Library materials should not be loaned to others.

  • For more information, or to sign up for the service, interested parties should contact their local branch library.
